Toy Soldiers, a Take on Terrorism and Schools.

As cnn.com puts it, an attack recently happened on Ohio State University’s campus in which 11 people were hospitalized and the attacker killed. The man went around campus and attacked multiple people with a knife, his motives so far have revolved around his religion as the article says. Abdul Razak is the man’s name, he has posted multiple things telling Americans to stop interfering with the Muslim religion and countries, he then said “”By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday.” The man’s motives are obviously an issue that must be dealt with as is the entire situation. The connection with film works would be the 1991 film Toy Soldiers. As imdb.com explains, a boarding school is taken hostage by Columbian terrorists in order for one of the terrorists to free his father. Though the film shows a much more organized and armed group of people it still shows the horrors of terroristic acts, especially on school grounds.
